2013 McLaren 12C Spider Convertible

The McLaren 12C Spider is the convertible version of McLaren Automotive’s MP4-12C supercar. Priced at US $302,830 in Great Britain, this lightweight convertible has a distinctive retractable hard top, and offers buyers impressive performance levels together with remarkable usability.

McLaren had previously introduced its MP4-12C supercar about a year ago, which was followed by a bout of worldwide expansion, during which 38 retail outlets were opened in 22 countries. The production launch of the MP4-12C truly saw the re-birth of McLaren as an automaker, as the company did not have an exclusive production vehicle for more than ten years. With the McLaren 12C Spider, the car manufacturer hopes to attract customers who love the thrill of supercar speed, together with open-top driving.
